Lists

Lists are used to represent lists of information. Lists can be unordered (bulleted) or ordered (numbered). Definition lists are also supported.

Unordered

To create an unordered list, start each line of text with an asterisk (*) followed by a space.

* one
* two
* three
  • one
  • two
  • three

Ordered

To create an ordered list, start each line of text with a “number sign” (#), a period (.), and a space.

#. one
#. two
#. three
  1. one
  2. two
  3. three

Nesting

Lists can be nested by indenting lines with spaces. Make sure that lines that should be part of the same list have the same indentation.

#. one
#. two
  * inner
  * list
#. three
  1. one
  2. two
    • inner
    • list
  3. three

Definition

Definition lists are also supported. Start the line with a semicolon (;) and separate the term from the definition with a colon with spacing around it (:).
